Thursday, May 25th 7:00 PM In celebration of the Jewish people receiving the Torah, we will be having a series of presentations on Shavuot. Rabbi Peter Levy will be speaking about why we traditionally eat dairy foods (non-meat) on Shavuot. Amy Dattner-Levy, our cantorial soloist, will talk about the Book of Ruth. A presentation on the history and impact of Jewish humor will be led by Steve Soreff (guaranteed to be punny, maybe even funny). There will be ample time for discussion and, of course, the sharing of dairy foods and desserts. People are welcome to bring “dairy” foods (non-meat) to share. The program will be held at Etz Hayim Synagogue, 1-1/2 Hood Road, Derry, NH.
